Injured during Ride sharing Provider

With the expansion of ride-sharing services in the Verdugo City, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident happens; but you still may be injured.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride-sharing company may be hassle-free and budget-friendly, it isn't always safe to use. And, since you are not in control of the vehicle, you also aren't in control of your destiny. You would expect that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have exceptional abilities that complement their ability to get you to your desired destination safely, but regretfully that isn't always the situation. Studies show that since 2011 ride-sharing companies have increased traffic deaths in the US by 2%-3% (University of Chicago and Rice University), meaning that you are much more at risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved with any sort of accident while a paying passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a ride-sharing? Call us today at (877) 278-6890. This is especially true as the legal landscape of these companies continues to develop; laws may vary across state lines and our legal team knows the terrain. So if you are involved in an accident while riding in a ride share service, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free, no obligation assessment.

Limousines and Cabs

Employing a traditional taxi or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been around for awhile, the legal implications and processes are much more straightforward. While rideshare services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, cabs and limousines have been around since before cars had motors! The major difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying business; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and chauffeur driven car services are usually locally owned.Because cabs and limos are frequently company/corporately owned, they may be regulated even more strictly and subject to greater standards of care. Our team of experienced legal representatives will ensure that you receive the care and consideration your individual case demands and that you won't get "bullied" by a large transportation company. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC today for a FREE CONSULTATION.It goes without saying that getting in a traffic accident involving a minicab or chauffeur driven car - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also necessitate the ability of a knowledgeable legal firm. Call us today at (877) 278-6890.

Car Rental Accidents

If you are involved in a collision while operating a rental car, you will definitely have to deal with added issues not present in the instance of a car accident with your private car or truck.Along with the stress of the accident, any injuries, any property damage, and the physical and emotional well-being of all persons involved in the actual accident, having to contend with a corporate entity like a rental car company adds yet another layer of complication to your situation. Factors like:

  • Understanding responsibility - Who is at fault and to what extent?
  • Insurance coverage - Did you pay for extra insurance from the rental car company? What does your personal insurance policy provide? Who pays first?

In short, while being involved in an car accident is upsetting enough, the additional duty of dealing with the rental car company can be overwhelming. Allow our law firm to take care of everything for you. Call (877) 278-6890 now to confer with one of our lawyers. We have many years of practical experience in rental car accident law and have helped a number of people in the Verdugo City, CA area.

Rear End Crashes

Even if you do everything properly, you can still be involved in a collision. One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end crashes and make up 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your motor vehicle is stopped at a stop sign or crossroad (you are "at rest") and the car behind you fails to stop ("an object in motion"), your vehicle will be acted upon by that "unbalanced force" and will be forced forward when contact is established. Not only will this damage your vehicle, but since you are also "at rest" inside the vehicle, the "unbalanced force" will also act on your body like it does your car, creating a "whiplash" effect that can cause you acute bodily injury.The more quickly the vehicle that hits you is moving, the more potent the "unbalanced force" will be, and the more extensive the damage to you and your vehicle. It doesn't matter, however, if the vehicle that hits you is moving fast or slow, there will be damages, and you ought to contact us to assess that damage and your potential alternatives.You need an ally who will fight for you and your protection under the law. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 to receive the Verdugo City, CA area's best legal counsel.

Are Traffic Laws Different in Construction Zones?

Definitely. In fact, you should never consult with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters work for the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their obligation to protect their organization's cash, and they cannot accomplish that if they voluntarily present you with the highest settlement, so they are going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.

Is the Man Or Woman Who Hit Me Lawfully Responsible for My Hospital Costs?

They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your medical-related costs. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary healthcare costs, but you are only eligible for the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your settlement will be discounted by the corresponding percentage.For example, if you were struck by a car (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seatbelt violation, your settlement may be reduced by 30%.
